Last fall my husband started a new job so he was working late every day and had no time for fishing, but this year he’s gone fishing several times already and has brought at least one fish every time. Nothing beats fish that’s as fresh as the one you catch yourself.

You could bake the salmon by drizzling the sauce over it  before sending it in the oven, or you can cook it in the skillet and pour the thickened glaze on top as you serve it . Either way, this glaze gives the salmon a very nice Asian flare, with just a hint of ginger and garlic in it, we loved it!

Meanwhile sprinkle the fish with cracked black pepper on both sides.  Heat the skillet with 1 tablespoon oil over high heat, add the salmon and cook until golden on both sides, covering with lid in between. Depending on the salmon thickness you might need to lower the heat and cook it longer in order for it to cook through in the middle. If unsure, just poke with a fork in the middle and see if it has changed color to opaque as opposed to transluscent – indicating donneness.

    this looks SOOOOOO delicious!!! I am going to try this salmon recipe. That rice looks really tasty too!

    • Thanks Luba! I used bullion cubes instead of cubes to salt the water for cooking rice so it had a nice meaty flavor. If you have chicken broth you can use that instead 🙂

    What? I thought salmon season passed. Anyhow, I will be trying this when I crave for salmon. We stocked up in September with fresh caught wild king salmon from Astoria and froze it for the fall and winter.

    • Well now it probably has now, but a week before I posted the recipe my husband was still catching fish 🙂 But hey, stores have salmon year round 😀 Although it sounds like you’ll be good for a while with your fresh-caught-frozen salmon 😀

    I am trying this tonight. I have everything but rice vinegar. Could I use regular vinegar?

    • To be honest I am not sure, but I think any not too strongly flavored acid should work.

    If I wanted to bake it instead, what temp and for how long?

  • Marina, this looks fancy and delicious :). Our neighbor gave us some salmon fillet from his recent fishing trip, so I would give this a try.

    Made this for dinner this evening. This recipe is simple, tasty and healthy. The fish really only needs a little drizzle of glaze so there’s ample amount leftover. I’m using the remaining glaze for my baked tofu tomorrow!

    my husband is indifferent about fish (but I love it, especially salmon), so he wasn’t too excited when he saw I had salmon out to make for dinner… preparing it this way, I got praise that “this salmon is delicious!” needless to say, I was shocked and pleased. So easy and tasty, this is definitely a keeper!

    I’d like to know if this can be baked as a previous person asked, but no answer has come forth as yet and Nadia asked 3 years ago. So, could you please notify if this can be baked as it sounds quite delicious.

    • Yes, you can definitely bake the salmon. Just bake for 11-15 minutes depending on the thickness of your salmon at @450F.
